Our girl Zevon had an unplanned play-date today when a roving dog from a few streets over stopped by. Our last dog was a wanderer....what a love she was ,though. She would see our boys getting in their football equipment and show up at the field. One time my friend picked us up for church and then went back to pick up her son. Fritz,the usher, was leading her out by the collar as we walked in. Almost everyone in town knew her. Even the grouchy lady down the street had a soft spot for her. I know it's irresponsible to let a dog wander like that. She just loved her family and was always watching out for us. She was a beautiful black lab.
When we got Zevon we had an electric fence installed. Best idea ever. She trained easily with it. We've never had to worry about her leaving .Well, Dolly had a much younger family to look after and no electric fence so I can forgive her wandering. Zevon will be five on June 29th , she no longer wears the fence collar, and she's always there when I call her.
